An awesome movie, 16 August 2004
Author: Dorishim-1

When the announcement came that an American Yu-gi-oh! movie was to be released; stupid anime "otakus" instantly claimed that it would suck since it was being handled by 4kids. But now it's out and it's turned out to be a great film. From cartoony violence to energy blasts to fistfighting Egyptian mummies to a dark clown impaling Yugi with a virtual knife, this movie is 90 minutes of explosive action.

The plot isn't bad either. It revolves around Yugi and his friends trying to defeat Anubis, his army of the undead, and his "puppet"; the wealthy Seto Kaiba. The characters are also very good. Characters like Yugi and Kaiba are cool, characters like Joey, Tea, and Pegasus are funny, and Anubis is just plain evil.

Ignore the critcism this movie gets from either otakus or critics who can't enjoy an animated film, sit back, and enjoy the show. It's time to duel!
